  • Gmail is reportedly down in some areas, with roughly 2% of its users seeing temporary error code (500) messages. Google’s own Apps Status Dashboard shows a service disruption under the Google Mail column, and @gmail posted a tweet on the issue:

    Update: Google now reports that the Gmail outage has been fixed – “The problem with Google Mail should be resolved. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and continued support. Please rest assured that system reliability is a top priority at Google, and we are making continuous improvements to make our systems better.”

    None of my 13 Gmail accounts seem to have been affected. Did anyone else experience a disruption in service?
